The short video above shows the unbridled joy of a young boy in Angola, Africa after he receives a Christmas shoebox all the way from the UK, courtesy of the Samaritan’s Purse appeal.
The smile on his face is simply dazzling – and heartwarming.
Hopefully, this festive season someone like that young boy will receive a Christmas shoebox that has been lovingly put together by one of the Lifetime staff – thanks to the encouragement of our legal administrator Tamsin Naylor (pictured below).
Lifetimer Tamsin is again doing her bit to bring Christmas cheer to under-privileged children around the world, by collecting shoeboxes as part of the Samaritan’s Purse appeal.
Tamsin said: “The Christmas shoeboxes are a wonderful gift for a child who has nothing.
“For the last couple of years my colleagues at Lifetime have really helped make a difference. We collected around 50 in total last year, which was a large contribution to the Samaritan’s Purse appeal, and my lovely colleagues have again risen to the challenge this year too!
“It’s a brilliant idea and you can even follow your box online to see where it goes!”
